Have you ever been invited to go roller skating but turned down your friends because you didn’t know how to skate? At Playland Skate Center in Austin, TX, “I don’t know how” is no longer an excuse! We have a great option for beginners – young and old – to help you learn to skate with confidence!
Skate Mates are made of plastic and have wheels on the bottom to push in front of you while you skate. They are shaped like a V with a 90 degree angle. You stand in the middle with one hand on each side and skate forward. The Skate Mates help you keep your balance while you are trying to learn the coordination of pushing your skates around the rink.
A Skate Mate for Many Sizes
Playland Skate Center has Skate Mates that come in 3 different sizes to fit most skaters. Our largest Skate Mate is recommended for skaters no taller than 5 feet.
